La Rioja Alta Viña Ardanza Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2005

$33

Dark ruby red with an orange tint on the rim. Intense and lively on the nose, with spicy and balsamic aromas, scents of vanilla, coconut shells and black pepper with undertones of blackberries. Well-structured on the palate, perfectly balanced in acidity and alcohol content, with soft and silky tannins. The long aftertaste displays flavours of fresh blackberries along with spicy woody notes.

Always a winner and always a great deal. 2015 marks 125 vintages of wine made by La Rioja Alta. Bright red and savory fruit, excellent acidity and fine grain tannin. Elegant plum, cherry, and strawberry spiked with spice, meat and a touch of leather. Refined and mature wine does not get better than this at this price (abt $25). 80% Tempranillo from Rioja Alta and 20% Garnacha (Grenache) from vineyards in the eastern Baja section of #rioja #spain #reserva #lariojaalta

Soft & round. Fine grain tannins, peppery cherry, ripe raspberry, blackberry & plum, plus a ton of spice in the nose. Nicely transferred to the palate. Seems like a hot vintage.

Can taste the American oak. A little hot. Not a fan.

2005 and showing some age that only lends to the complexity. Good fruit still remains and lingers on the finish.

2005. Been away from such pronounced American oak for a while. Jarring on its own but meshes nicely with a grilled ribeye steak. Classic Rioja profile. You'd never know it's 11 years old. Fruit is bright and clean; concentration and structure in spades. Happily the oak is beginning to fade an hour in. Acid is perky. A wine that insists you pay attention to it.

Rich. Burnt caramel. Roasted. Smoky. Nice mouthfeel. A circus girl's pantaloons. Yes. We just said that.

Intense vanilla and cinnamon aromas. Tart and green tannins. Red fruits such as raspberry and cherry with a long finish.

Wow...I heart this. I wish I had decanted it about 6 hours earlier. Opened into ripe plums and stone with round tannins.

Greta Rioja Alta! Wood is present but integrated beautifully. Spice, dried fruits with a smooth long finish.
